Liz O’Driscoll, Head of Innovation at Exeter City Futures, will be speaking at the Smart Cities UK 2017 Conference on 1st February. Exeter City Futures will be presented as a case study, to explain how it is developing a programme with the aim of making Exeter and the surrounding region sustainable for the future.
Exeter City Futures: A Case Study
Exeter City Futures is based on the philosophy that big steps towards building better cities can be achieved through the use of analytics. Creating an ‘Analytical City’ is about giving all of us the courage to ask big questions about the city – and life – we want, and unleashing the change necessary to make that happen.
Our mission is to make Exeter congestion free and energy independent by 2025. This goal will require all parts of the City, leadership, educational institutions, businesses and individuals to work together using forward looking analytics to identify the key challenges that need to be solved.
We believe that sustainable growth can be realised by adopting competition models of procurement and joining up and unlocking cash flows and capital to create innovation that is truly aligned to local needs.
In this session we will discuss how we are analysing how our City works and are supporting, validating and scaling innovative, data-led solutions to achieve the goals for our city.
